Good morning all.
As the weather is being so mean to us all I thought I would start by giving you all a laugh and change my profile picture. This is my hubby and I whilst aboard our cruise ship in June and just look at my face. I just cannot smile in photo's I always manage to pull some sort of awful face, although David doesn't look much better does he he looks like he is gritting his teeth.
Anyway back to the task in hand, this week at Moving Along With The Times it is Mau's turn to set us the challenge and she went with 'Celebration in Pink, Pearls and Pretty'. I thoroughly enjoyed colouring this Whiff of Joy image and now can't understand why I have never used it before. The flourish die cut is made from a Cheery Lynn die I brought whilst at the Doncaster show with Shell last weekend, I had wanted it for ages but everywhere I looked it was either out of stock or a ridiculous amount of postage just to send that.

I was lucky enough to be a winner at Mema's Craft last week and got 2 great Kenny K images which I can't wait to use.
Finally before I go I just wanted to show you my unit that my darling hubby made for me to store all my pens and pencils in (got to butter him up as I know he will read this and I want a paper holder one made next lol) . After buying the last of the Promarkers I needed to complete my set at Doncaster, I needed somewhere to store them all so this is what David made for me. I have not organised it or put all my pens in it yet this is David's arrangement and how I found it after returning from having my hair cut. See Shell all that noise yesterday during our phone call was worth it!
Please pop over to the challenge blog and have a look at all the other pretty pink and pearl creations you won't be disappointed.
Thanks for stopping by, I have my inlaws here for the next couple of days so will catch up with your blogs at the weekend.
